Over the years I have seen many posts on this list where Unix hard liners complain about people posting their replies to the top of the email messages on this list.
The fact of life is all the Unix mail clients adhere to the Unix email format of posting the reply to the bottom of the email while indenting with a quote character. Top posting came along when MS/Windows came on the market with their own email clients: Outlook express which is the email client built into Internet explorer and the MS/Office Outlook email client. There is a little known fix for MS/Outlook express and MS/Office Outlook email clients that change the behavior of these MS/Windows email clients so they adhere to the Unix email format of posting the reply to the bottom of the email while indenting with a quote character. Information and fix download can be found at these URLs. MS/Outlook express http://home.cs.tum.edu/~jain/software/oe-quotefix/ MS/Office Outlook http://home.cs.tum.edu/~jain/software/outlook-quotefix/ To all you Unix hard liners, Please instead of complaining to the top posters, it would be so much nicer if you just informed the MS/Windows top poster of the above links so they know about the solution to fix their email clients to adhere to the Unix email format used on this list.
